TWT_005 building momentum in the labour party

As millions struggle, workers strike and the wealthiest rake it in, Labour’s choice is simple: back the workers, or back the bosses. The Labour Party was founded by trade unions and workers remain the beating heart of our movement. As they take to the picket line to protect their wages and terms and conditions, we need to mobilise the Labour Party behind them and bold demands for economic transformation. We know that the Labour membership and the public back the workers, but the Labour leadership needs to as well. Starmer can’t sit on the fence while people’s jobs are on the line.

That’s why Momentum has launched the ‘Labour for labour’ campaign, to push Starmer to mandate frontbench MPs to attend picket lines and fully back striking workers and their demands for inflation-proof pay-rises. Join this session to hear about the campaign and how to get involved!
